A key purpose of the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation

This flaw cannot be fixed by simply adjusting the time barriers,                                                                
because any barrier removes Alaska's leverage in the Alaska liquefied

consideration of a backup option. We cannot afford to proceed with                                                              
blinders of our own making. To be forced to wait over two years to                                                              
develop a viable backup plan would result in no backup plan at all.                                                             
This is a risk I cannot accept. Additionally, CSHB 132(L&C) creates a                                                           
limitation on Alaska marketing Alaska's gas. This limitation goes                                                               
beyond the July 1, 2017 date with no end date on this restriction.                                                              
                                                                                                                                
Therefore, I am vetoing CSHB 132(L&C) because the bill would

this risk in light of our budget situation. My veto does not hamper

can move forward in a manner consistent with the assurance that                                                                 
should AKLNG not proceed for any number of reasons, Alaska has a

We remain diligent in our efforts to move forward on the AKLNG

not impede the advancement of the AKLNG project. Instead, my                                                                    
decision will allow the State to move forward, as any responsible

For these reasons, I have vetoed CSHB 132(L&C).
